applescript problem? (5 posts)

Has anyone else been using applescript with Fetch 4.0b4? I have three times tried to record a script, and then run the script. And each time fetch crashes.
I open script editor. Open Fetch and make connection to host/dir. Tell script editor to record. Drag finder file to transfer window. Tell script editor to stop recording. If I then attempt to run the script without quitting fetch first, Fetch hangs in the middle of the file transfer. Reboot.
If I quit fetch between each script run, the script and fetch runs fine. Haven't tested with any other combinations.

I just tried to duplicate the problem, but Fetch doesn't crash for me (it does fail to login unless I fix the password in the script -- Fetch sends it a bogus one as a security precaution).
Could you post an example of a script that causes this crash?
I don't even have to run a script. It happens even if the first and second put is done manually. I am having wierdness and frequent crashes with other apps the last few days also so I may have a conflict or problem caused by a recent update or two. Lets put this on the back burner or delete this thread altogeather.
I have an automated process (using Frontier) that uploads web pages. Fetch 3.0.3 works fine, Fetch 4 beta crashes (error type 1).
I have an STDLOG that I can provide that may help. I can also ferret out the sequence of AppleEvents that occur to cause the crash. 100% reproducible.
Hmmmm. I did a clean install of OS9.0.4, copied over the minimal number of extensions I need to do work (using CC Clean install assistant), and Fetch 4.0b5 still crashes on me using scripted or manual put. So I selected base apple extension set. This made no difference with Fetch still crashing on the second or third put. Tried fiddling with my internet settings to disable firewall (was ftp'ing to internal host anyway) but that did not help either. My guess is either something fetch needs gets corrupted or maybe this is a machine specific problem. Am running a beige G3.
